I’m disappointed this picture above does not allow you to fully appreciate the complete separation of the platform on my well-worn shoe.
The night this happened, I hobbled thru the last 3 hours with it held together by rubber bands. I now have my good pair AND a backup pair in my locker. Four new pairs ready to be put into service at home. Chinese Laundry “Secret” size 8 1/2. I hope my remaining pairs outlast the rest of my stripping career.
